New look! And more pictures!

Initially, when I set up the dark background/light font, I thought it would make it easier to read. I hmm’d and hawwed over it, and I’ve decided that I think something a little more muted and traditional would be easier on the eyes. Hence, new design! Plus, I really love jellyfish, and so now there’s a jellyfish.

In celebration of new designs and jellyfish, here are some pictures:

These were both taken at night, on the edge of the lagoon. The jellyfish were attracted to the lights on the underside of the deck, and there was an entrancing dance of jellies swarming about the light in such a hypnotic way. We stared at them for ages.

The above photos were all taken at the Poor Knights Marine Reserve. I like the little things, because they don’t move too quickly or too far, so they’re much easier to photograph! Hope you like them!



Skirts in Scuba – 6 June 2009

A few skirts in their scuba gear...

A few skirts in their scuba gear...

Hello girls!

It’s time for our (now) annual Skirts in Scuba trip to the Poor Knights.  The Dive Mistress and I are organising a ladies’ day of diving with Yukon Charters, also known as the infamous Noel and Jo, up in Tutukaka.

There are 10 spaces available on this trip, and let me tell you, the spread that Jo prepares for the lunch is out of this world! Two dives in the gorgeous Poor Knights, a time to bond with your sisters, fantastic hosts and fantastic food – what more could you ask for?

So!!! SATURDAY, 6 JUNE 2009 – $160 for 2 dives, a full lunch spread prepared by the beautiful Jo, some bubbles (not just the ones you exhale!), a great skipper and some like-minded chicks to get to know and love!

We are also arranging accommodation for the Saturday night (highly recommended due to ‘off-gassing’ aka drinking after diving), and for anyone who wants it on the Friday.  Please contact me if you’re interested!!!
